Wow,

So I just realized how long it's been since I updated this Blog. I have lost of stuff to talk about and I am sure you'll want to hear it all. But, I am a little stressed for time of late so I think I'll leave if for another day. I hope all my SG friends are doing well.

On the Death of Osama bin Laden

After a solemn speech by our President, I was treated to news footage of Americans dancing in the streets of Washington DC to chants of "USA, USA". I have heard calls for friends to join in a "dead Osama" party. I almost expect to see the foam fingers brought out. There are reports of "jubilation" in the DC...

Radical Tolerance in modern "civil"-ization
On Sunday last (1/31/2010), the minister of our congregation, Rev. Lone Jensen, asked us to consider the idea of Civility. As I was listening to her sermon, I was taking a few notes on my iPod Touch and thinking about the question deeply. What marks civility? How do we practice it? Is Civility equal to tolerance or...

I will wrap her body round me, like a cloak.
The breadth of her form lengthened against mine,
The hot breath of her voice against my ear,
The weight of her gaze and the weight of her core.

I will wrap her thoughts around me, like a cloak.
Her measured introspection,
The expanse of her ideas and her ideals,
The warmth of her humor...

soulmate

Blown about like a shuttlecock,
buffeted by winds of fleeting emotion. Assigned like fatigues to each new recruit.

The foolish craftsman hurls gobs of want like plaster at a wall hopeful
that with repetiton, it will, at long last and finally stick;
not just stick, but form of itself a sculptured mantle to hold his dreams,
to bear the weight of his future.

Once, I hid
In darkened rooms and well lit halls.
In slumber and the somnolence of a self induced haze.
In silence and solitude
In crushing noise and crowds.
In the inferred personage of others desires.

Once, I hid
From projected fears.
From unearned ridicule.
From disappointment or disappointing.
From expectation or expectations.
From responsibility or regrets.

Today, I run for...

Sleep (or the lack thereof)

It is 2:32am on a Saturday as I write this post and (again) I cannot sleep. This seems to happen a lot lately. In fact its gotten to the point that the consequences of not having the sleep are becoming a problem in the rest of my life. Particularly with work.

I am not sure what happened. Sleep and...

"My" Value Proposition
I work in the corporate world where we hear a lot of "corp-speak" like "paradigm shift" and "synergy". One of the phrases I hear quite a lot, and that we use at work quite often is "value proposition". But, I think that in using a phrase over and over we often devalue it's meaning, particularly in its broader application.

Where my...

Wake. Cope. Sleep. Repeat.

All you can ask of yourself is to handle Today; really it's all you can ask of the Universe.

Yesterday is over and has no power except that which you give it Now, in this Moment; Today.

Tomorrow is vague and unknowable, good or bad. A focus on Tomorrow can only lead to the pain of worry or the angst...

The Best Mothers Day Gift Ever

Rape.

The word conjures pictures of women beaten or battered into forced intercourse with a stranger, having been caught unawares in a parking lot, a deserted street, a back alley or somewhere she should not have been, alone (as if women should not be able to walk anywhere they choose worry free).
But, here is the reality (Statistics from...
